In the Belly of the Horse

In the Belly of the Horse toured the UK extensively in 2007 and 2009, with a week-long residency at the British Museum. The piece told the story of the Trojan War, from the point of view of the Greeks waiting inside their famous horse. The opera was written for four singers and four players, and included singers Abigail Kelly, Maciek O’Shea and Samuel Boden.
